    Scandal Savage
Click for Civilian Look 

Scandal Savage is the daughter of the immortal supervillain Vandal Savage and Amazonian demigoddess Menodora. Much like him, she's very hard to kill.

  • Alliterative Name: Scandal Savage.
  • All the Other Reindeer: She never fit in with the other Amazons, and her distaste for their Mandatory Motherhood made her even more distant.
  • Archnemesis Dad: She absolutely despises her father. When your dad is Vandal Savage, this is very understandable.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her Secret Six outfit shows her midsection.
  • Berserk Button: Don't bring up Scandal Savage's dad or do anything to remind her of him. Just don't do it. You'll be very lucky to still be in one piece if you make him enter her mind.
  • Butch Lesbian: Ironically, despite one of her lovers being an Amazonian Beauty, she is explicitly more masculine than her. She's certainly more masculine than Emily too.
  • Curtains Match the Windows: Brown hair and brown eyes.
  • Everyone Is Related: Through her mother Menodora, she's the granddaughter of Apollo, making her great-niece of Diana and Cassie Sandsmark.
  • Girls' Love: First with Furious Female Knockout and later with Emily Nashton, a savant genius. And eventually with both. Girl got game.
  • Gorgeous Greek: Scandal's mother is an Amazonian of Themyscira and she was raised there, but she's a comparatively mild example of this trope.
  • Has a Type: Both her love interests are redheads.
  • Healing Factor: Thanks to her immortal parents Vandal and Menodora. She claims to be "damned hard to kill" at the least.
  • Interspecies Romance: Her, a half-Amazon with divine parentage and a New God from Apokalypse.
  • Jack-of-All-Trades: Scandal has lived many lives and mastered many trades - many dealing with travel. She is a great sailor, navigator, equestrian, driver, and pilot.
  • Omniglot: Claims to know 27 languages.
  • Polyamory: With Knockout and Emily Nashton. Since she couldn't choose between them, now they're in this type of relationship.
  • Really 700 Years Old: She's over 400 years old, but unlike members of the League of Assassins who use the Lazarus pits to prolong their lives, she inherited her longevity from her parents.
  • Related in the Adaptation: Her mother is Menodora, better known as Maravilla, making her half-Amazon, half-cro magnon.
  • Statuesque Stunner: While shorter than her mother, at 5'9"/175cm tall she's quite attractive.
  • Stronger Than They Look: Scandal can lift three times her body weight and she has taken multiple rifle rounds to her chest while keeping herself on her feet and in the battle.
  • Uneven Hybrid: Her father is an immortal Cro-Magnon while her mother is an Amazonian demi-goddess. She's officially classified as Demigoddess Meta-Magnon.
  • Unstoppable Rage: When her loved ones are endangered, Scandal has little ability to control herself. During such times, it is very easy for her emotions to boil over into a rage and not come out of it for hours or even days.
  • Who Names Their Kid "Dude"?: Vandal Savage, that's who. Her birth name is actually Francisca Pizarro and her birth was quite a scandal back in the day.
  • Wolverine Claws: Her Lamentation Blades, that were once part of the Suit of Sorrows and whose magic was stabilized by Themysciran artificiers.

    Knockout (Kaye Ou/Kay Oak)
Click for Civilian Look

  • Big Sister Worship: She grew up admiring the leader of the Furies Big Barda.
  • Blood Knight: Knockout loves combat, and is often the first into a fight and the last out. It doesn't overwhelm her to a degree that it endangers her allies, but she has little interest in the safety of bystanders who happen to get in her way - paying them little to no regard.
  • Breeding Slave: She ended as one for 52 years after losing against Barda, although she didn't mind that much, seeing it as a Gilded Cage. Although she ended pregnant three times, she was never able to carry to term.
    • As punishment for lying to Darkseid about the whereabouts of Barda and Scott, she was forced once more into the breeding pits, this time without privileges, where she gave birth to a daughter, who was immediately taken away by Granny Goodness.

  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Wears a spiked shoulder-pad on her left shoulder.

  • Leotard of Power: Knockout wears an armored one.
  • Partial Transformation: Kaye is able to alter her appearance in minor cosmetic ways, such as altering her skin color (ie: concealing her spots), changing her eye or hair appearance, growing or shrinking herself within a few inches of her natural height, and so forth.
  • Pet the Dog: Finding out Scott and Barda were in a relationship and had a daughter, made her leave and lie to her superiors about the couple's whereabouts. Desaad exposed her and was sent back to the breeding pits. Barda freed her and she fled to Earth, trying to make a new life for herself.

  • Redhead In Green: Either as a Fury or in casual clothes, Knockout wears green.
  • Super Reflexes: Kaye has a highly developed nervous system. Her reaction speed and hand-eye coordination are superior to that of a normal human. She can move fast enough to dodge a bullet before the gun fires.
  • Super Strength: Being bred for her strength, Kaye can lift over 100 tons and has been shown able to knockout a Kryptonian with her bare hands.
  • Statuesque Stunner: She's 6'4"/193cm tall, making her the tallest member of the current Secret Six and barely shorter than Bane. She's also a complete stunner.

  • Amicable Exes: She and Scandal were once lovers, and remain good friends after many centuries.
  • The Baroness: A noblewoman by birth and quite kinky.
  • Beauty Mark: Has a mole below her right eye.

  • Brown Note: She's a Warder, so her scream will mess you up hard if you hear it.
  • Claustrophobia: Jeanette is prone to panic attacks whenever confined or imprisoned.
  • Collared by Fashion: Wears a collar to hide the marks of her decapitation.
  • Cool Big Sis: Sees Black Alice as her pupil and surrogate little sister.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: She was a servant of Countess Elizabeth Bathory, who forced her to watch as she tortured and killed other servants, telling her she was going to be next. Years later, because of her previous association with the Countess, was sentenced to death and her executioner botched the execution, making her decapitation an agonizing experience.
  • Femme Fatale: Jeanette is a very attractive immortal pleasure-seeker who is more than comfortable using sex of all manner (except bondage) to her advantage.

Usually they were once mortals whose life was so consumed by death, or their death was so tragic, that their spirit would likely not pass on to the afterlife peacefully. Sensing this, Death chooses to make these departed souls into her chosen sentinels.

  • Regal Ringlets: While only a noblewoman, she has her hair in ringlets.
  • Sweet Tooth: Becoming a Warder left her with a sweet tooth.
  • Totally Not a Werewolf: Jeanette likes to say she is a banshee, but that is a lie. She is a Vödor or a "Warder". Jeanette is aware of the distinction but the lie suits her needs. One of the starkest differences between Warder and Banshee is Jeanette's scream is psychic (not sonic) in nature and causes those who hear it to feel what she felt when she died.
  • Vapor Wear: She doesn't wear a bra or underwear. She does wear a Leotard of Power underneath her coat while on missions.
